What we say:
Meaning City Hall, this huge salmon-red red building was the residence of Melaka's colonial Dutch governors and has the bread oven to prove it.
The interior has been converted into a sprawling, if rather dull, History and Ethnography Museum with antique porcelain, keris swords and creepy mannequins wearing Malay wedding costumes.
Admission also includes entry to the Education Museum, Literature Museum, Admiral Cheng Ho Gallery, Governor Museum and Democratic Government Museum up the hill behind Stadthuys.
Join the guided tour Saturdays and Sundays at 10:30 and 14:30 to get the most of it. Open daily.
